Display simple throughput statistics for network interface controllers. Requires Linux kernel >= 2.6

Project description

Display simple throughput statistics for network interface controllers. Requires Linux kernel >= 2.6

Output can be viewed in terminal. Additionally you’ll find the output in a file suitable for parsing from within your application. The program can be executed as daemon to provide you reliable network throughput numbers at any given time.

Example output

eth0 thruput [bytes/s]                      total               1s               5s              15s
Receiving                                 1982418              416              416              412
Transmitting                              4029588             1296             1296             1287

Installation

Method 1: Packaged installation

$ # make sure easy_install it there (debian):
$ sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
$ sudo easy_install ifstat

Method 2: Source installation

$ git clone https://github.com/prinzdezibel/ifstat
$ cd ifstat
$ python setup.py develop

Run program

$ ifstat --help

File based program output

Start program as foreground or daemon process. Throughput numbers will be written to a file periodically:

$ cat /var/lib/ifstat/thruput.txt

Parse this file to retrieve relevant data for your application.
